The City of Boise is taking bold steps to address climate change and is bringing youth leaders to the table to drive climate solutions. The Youth Climate Action Council is made up of students from across the city to represent new voices and spark local action.
The youth council members are working alongside city staff to imagine, strategize and complete the design and building of projects and actions that will tangibly impact Boise. The youth council is collaborating on efforts to combat climate change, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, develop public art and create community education and engagement.
The city is committed to ensuring that Boise is adaptable in the face of climate change. It is critical that the city works together to reduce climate impacts, build a robust climate economy and craft community-based solution. City staff helps coordinate the council and equips them with the tools they need for success.
